Well, been given the privilege to host another CS so here we go...

Sooo as we go through the seasons the shadows tend to shift; Winter longer than fall, than summer, etc. But also we get some nice reflections and so this weeks theme/challenge is to capture the shadows and reflections in your part of the universe. Ahhh... but this can be interpreted anyway you see fit - in other words you can be as abstract as you'd like so long as you can explain it. Keeps things interesting. Of course the usual rules and time span apply. And since I'm the host, I'll start it off with just a simple image. Happy Shooting!!

Thanks for hosting; and for providing an elegant, and deceptively simple, inspiration for starters . . .

As promised... The answer to the reflection question can be seen in the same shot a few hours before nightfall. This is Peachtree Center Plaza in ATL and at the far end of it is a ground level water fountain so indeed a reflection. The plaza is always lit with changing color themes.

Wowzer on that 2nd - the subject, its shadow(s), and your treatment. Leonardo and craquelure walk into a bar for a dry white wine???

OK . . . good thing that our Collective Shoots have never been any sort of competition (rather just a gentle kick in the butt to grab a camera and shoot something), 'cuz otherwise, the "mercy rule" would have come into play.:D

Connie - As a (retired) chemist, one of my remaining mottos is "Do the experiment!", just as you have been having fun doing - with fine results recently. Perhaps I shouldn't mention another remaining motto which is "Clean your glassware and/or dinner items immediately", for fear of angering my sweetie who occasionally checks in here . . .:eek:
